Either they are choosing only the most die-hard fanboys for the beta, or the people who make these videos need to be fired. It is bad enough that the resolution sucks so you can't get a good feel for the actual graphic presentation, but the voice overs and actual sequences chosen to be shown are so incredibly snore worthy that I am tempted to believe that a librarian from the Victorian age is overseeing the marketing department.
I am convinced i won't be able to overcome my own Star Wars fanboy disorder and I will buy and play this game, but for the love of all these insanely geeky and sci-fi.....can we get some quality demonstrations from Bioware before release is upon us? I would like just one HD video of a high level raid with nobody voicing it over. just pure gameplay and game audio. One. Have it switch from player role to player role at times that actually make sense. Please.
Is that too much to ask for?
Granted I am a Star Wars fanboy. But looking at the beta from a pure MMO players perspective. The group story instances, and Class Storylines make the game far more fun than I had with WoW. Especially when it comes to replaying the game as a different class since each one has it's own unique storyline. And the fully voiced questgivers add a lot to the emmersion. But thats just my opinion.
